We seem to agree on most points you mention.I said the sound quality is fantastic,the Black Peter is really good and I didn't mention the 12/20 China/Rider which is good because I only talked about the music which was new to us on this release.As for the Dark Star I found a few snippets interesting.Jerry plays an intriguing run from about 10:45 to 12:00 with an odd tone and a crisp jazzy feel.The 12/20 and 2/2 Dark Star's share a similar feel so I could see where if you liked one you would like both.I also agree that this release is a good representation of the era.Late 69' until Keith joined the band I find lacking.The backstory of the tapes make absolutely no difference to me.

In this old thread about late 69' under 12/20 I mention the China Cat is good,so you don't think I'm just being agreeable.


Here is another old thread where I discuss not liking Dark Star's from 1970 all that much,so you don't think I was just being contentious.I am not suggesting you bother with either thread.Just reinforcing my sentiments on this era prior to this release.

Nice. I never thought you were being contentious, your opinion is your opinion and I am always interested in hearing different viewpoints. For me, 1970 is probably my favorite year in general and for Dark Stars. I do thank you for the links to those threads, they are pretty informative and I don't think I've read them before. So thanks!

The forumites contributed very nicely to those threads with information rich posts.I also enjoy hearing what people think about things here on the forum.I'm going to take some time and go through the 70' Dark Star's again and see what I hear this time.
